Bookshop bungle

October 31, 2008

Okay, it’s easy for simple proofreading errors to slip through unnoticed. All the same, isn’t it fun to mock those mistakes!

Here’s a beauty in the latest Angus and Robertson bookstore brochure. They have apparently just introduced a new rewards card for loyal customers. The benefits are listed as: reward vouchers, instant prizes, major prize draws and exclusive offers.

So far, so good. But then we are told: ‘Recieve a $5 voucher every time you reach 100 points!’.

There’s just something wrong about a bookshop not knowing the ‘i before e except after c‘ rule.
